Lockhart praises ladies who raise funds for Neonatal Unit

DUP Councillor Carla Lockhart has congratulated and commended a group of determined ladies who ran a coffee morning for Craigavon Area Hospital Neonatal Unit.

Many of the ladies have had experiences of premature birth and it is a cause close to their hearts.

Speaking following the event, Cllr Carla Lockhart said, “This is a very worthy cause. Premature birth is a very traumatic and distressing time for parents and I know only too well given my own families experiences of premature birth.

“My sister-in-law knows too well the good work of the neo-natal unit in CAH are involved in and it is essential that we as a community assist in raising funds for this unit.

“Any additional funds raised will ensure that the best facilities are available for babies who are born premature and will also go to research into further medical assistance for these babies.

These ladies who organised the coffee morning are a real inspiration and I would commend them for their determination in trying to raise funds for this worthy cause.”
